Murder on the Orient Express
Murder on the Orient express – just when midnight, a drift stops the train in its tracks. The luxurious train is amazingly full for the time of the year, however, by the morning it’s one traveler fewer. An American businessman lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated from the whole world and with a killer on the train, detective Hercule Poirot has to identify the murderer before someone else dies – in case he or she decides to strike again.
